Today we‚Äôre laun¬≠ching a com¬≠ple¬≠te¬≠ly new Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te pro¬≠duct line, along with a refres¬≠hed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te lin¬≠e¬≠up of vir¬≠tu¬≠al machi¬≠nes. Over¬≠all, we‚Äôre intro¬≠du¬≠cing a wide ran¬≠ge of shapes and sizes of High Per¬≠for¬≠mance VMs, all with 100% NVMe SSD sto¬≠rage, and inclu¬≠ding ins¬≠tances powered by 3rd Gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ processors.
This is kind of a big deal for us, and hop¬≠eful¬≠ly for you too. Now more than ever, you might want to use Vultr for ever¬≠y¬≠thing ran¬≠ging from mis¬≠si¬≠on-cri¬≠ti¬≠cal enter¬≠pri¬≠se needs to your per¬≠so¬≠nal projects.
Com¬≠pu¬≠te for Any Use Case
We have made a num¬≠ber of updates to our plat¬≠form, but befo¬≠re we dive into the details, here is a bird‚Äôs‚ÄĎeye view.
You can think of our Com¬≠pu¬≠te plat¬≠form as having three dis¬≠crete pro¬≠duct lines:
1. Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ‚Äď Start¬≠ing at $28 per month, the¬≠se VMs are easy to use and ela¬≠s¬≠ti¬≠cal¬≠ly sca¬≠lable. Becau¬≠se they run atop dedi¬≠ca¬≠ted vCPUs, your workloads run with fast con¬≠sis¬≠tent per¬≠for¬≠mance, with no noi¬≠sy neigh¬≠bors. This qua¬≠li¬≠ty makes the¬≠se ins¬≠tances the best choice for many busi¬≠ness appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons, such as high traf¬≠fic web¬≠sites, trans¬≠co¬≠ding, CI/CD, etc.
2. Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ‚Äď Start¬≠ing at just $5 per month, the¬≠se VMs are high¬≠ly afforda¬≠ble becau¬≠se they run on shared vCPUs. For many burs¬≠ty appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons (e.g., low traf¬≠fic web¬≠sites, game ser¬≠vers, VPNs, etc.), Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances deli¬≠ver gre¬≠at per¬≠for¬≠mance at a remar¬≠kab¬≠ly low cost.
3. Bare Metal ‚Äď Start¬≠ing at $120 per month, the¬≠se ser¬≠vers pro¬≠vi¬≠de dedi¬≠ca¬≠ted phy¬≠si¬≠cal CPUs and direct access to your server‚Äôs under¬≠ly¬≠ing hard¬≠ware, ther¬≠eby deli¬≠ve¬≠ring maxi¬≠mum per¬≠for¬≠mance wit¬≠hout any vir¬≠tua¬≠liza¬≠ti¬≠on over¬≠head. Bare Metal is as easy to pro¬≠vi¬≠si¬≠on and mana¬≠ge as our VMs, and for par¬≠ti¬≠cu¬≠lar¬≠ly inten¬≠se workloads it can deli¬≠ver the best price-to-performance.
You‚Äôll now see the¬≠se pro¬≠duct cate¬≠go¬≠ries when you deploy a ser¬≠ver within our con¬≠trol panel:
Powered by 3rd Gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on AMD EPYC CPUs and 100% NVMe SSD Storage
All Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances, and sel¬≠ect High Per¬≠for¬≠mance Cloud Cloud ins¬≠tances, are powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC CPUs.
This is par¬≠ti¬≠cu¬≠lar¬≠ly obvious when you pro¬≠vi¬≠si¬≠on a Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tance in the con¬≠trol panel. Within that sec¬≠tion, you‚Äôll see new opti¬≠ons for CPU & Sto¬≠rage Tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy.
This is the first time we‚Äôve offe¬≠red AMD pro¬≠ces¬≠sor-powered vir¬≠tu¬≠al machi¬≠nes, and given their excep¬≠tio¬≠nal per¬≠for¬≠mance, the¬≠se VMs are now our default, and recom¬≠men¬≠ded opti¬≠on for most users.
AMD has pushed the per¬≠for¬≠mance and tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties of the EPYC fami¬≠ly of pro¬≠ces¬≠sors over the last few years. 3rd gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors, which power our new VMs, con¬≠ti¬≠nue that tra¬≠jec¬≠to¬≠ry, pro¬≠vi¬≠ding up to 64 cores in a sin¬≠gle CPU. The par¬≠ti¬≠cu¬≠lar 3rd Gen EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors that under¬≠pin our new VMs are powered by AMD‚Äôs Zen 3 micro¬≠ar¬≠chi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re, which deli¬≠vers fan¬≠ta¬≠stic per¬≠for¬≠mance per core along with a maxi¬≠mum fre¬≠quen¬≠cy of 3.675GHz.
We obvious¬≠ly still love Intel too, and if Intel-powered ins¬≠tances are the right choice for your needs, we have a wide ran¬≠ge of plans for you!
Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te is Powered by Dedi¬≠ca¬≠ted vCPUs, Built with 100% NVMe SSD Sto¬≠rage, and Available in a Varie¬≠ty of Ser¬≠ver Types
Today‚Äôs launch includes the intro¬≠duc¬≠tion of a new pro¬≠duct line cal¬≠led Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te.
Unli¬≠ke our typi¬≠cal Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances that run on shared vCPUs, Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances run on vCPUs that are dedi¬≠ca¬≠ted to your workload, so you never have to worry about noi¬≠sy neighbors.
Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances are available in a varie¬≠ty of ser¬≠ver types, with vary¬≠ing levels of CPU, RAM, and sto¬≠rage to best sup¬≠port a broad ran¬≠ge of workloads.
Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed Cloud Com¬≠pu¬≠te ins¬≠tances are desi¬≠gned to be a more afforda¬≠ble alter¬≠na¬≠ti¬≠ve to solu¬≠ti¬≠ons like AWS EC2, in order to help users tran¬≠si¬≠ti¬≠on from the Big Tech clouds to our inde¬≠pen¬≠dent plat¬≠form.
Here‚Äôs how to think about which ser¬≠ver type is best for you:
‚ÄĘ Gene¬≠ral Pur¬≠po¬≠se ‚Äď Often a good start¬≠ing point, the¬≠se VMs pro¬≠vi¬≠de a typi¬≠cal balan¬≠ce of CPU, RAM, and NVMe SSD sto¬≠rage. We recom¬≠mend Gene¬≠ral Pur¬≠po¬≠se ins¬≠tances for many web and appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on ser¬≠vers, e‚ÄĎcommerce, game ser¬≠vers, video and audio strea¬≠ming, API ser¬≠ving, and rela¬≠tio¬≠nal databases.
‚ÄĘ CPU Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ‚Äď For com¬≠pu¬≠te bound appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons, the¬≠se VMs pro¬≠vi¬≠de pro¬≠por¬≠tio¬≠nal¬≠ly more CPU than they do RAM and NVMe SSD sto¬≠rage. We recom¬≠mend CPU Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ins¬≠tances for workloads like video enco¬≠ding, batch pro¬≠ces¬≠sing, CI/CD, high per¬≠for¬≠mance com¬≠pu¬≠ting (HPC), ad ser¬≠ving, and ana¬≠ly¬≠tics processing.
‚ÄĘ Memo¬≠ry Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ‚Äď For memo¬≠ry bound appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons, the¬≠se VMs pro¬≠vi¬≠de pro¬≠por¬≠tio¬≠nal¬≠ly more RAM than they do CPU and NVMe SSD sto¬≠rage. We recom¬≠mend Memo¬≠ry Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ins¬≠tances for open source data¬≠ba¬≠ses (e.g., MyS¬≠QL), in-memo¬≠ry data¬≠ba¬≠ses and caches (e.g., Mem¬≠cached), and real-time analytics.
‚ÄĘ Sto¬≠rage Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ‚Äď The¬≠se VMs pro¬≠vi¬≠de espe¬≠ci¬≠al¬≠ly gene¬≠rous pro¬≠por¬≠ti¬≠ons of NVMe SSD sto¬≠rage accom¬≠pany¬≠ing a typi¬≠cal balan¬≠ce of CPU and RAM. We recom¬≠mend Sto¬≠rage Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ins¬≠tances for lar¬≠ge non-rela¬≠tio¬≠nal data¬≠ba¬≠ses (e.g., Cas¬≠san¬≠dra and Mon¬≠goDB), and high fre¬≠quen¬≠cy online tran¬≠sac¬≠tion pro¬≠ces¬≠sing (OLTP).
